As a group administrator or member, you can invite people to join groups. Keep in
mind that if you're using Jive as an internal
corporate community, people from outside the community might not be able to join your
You can find out about group members as follows:
Count of members (and followers)
Click on the group's landing page.
Who are members (or followers)
Click on the Followers and
Members links, and you'll be directed to the
group's People page.
Any group member can invite any other user to join a group. If the group is
public, then you can share the group with non members. If the group is private or
secret (also known as Private: Unlisted), the invited user must accept the
invitation. A group administrator must then approve the request to join the group.
If it was a group administrator who originally sent the invitation to the private or
secret group, the approval is automatic. Be sure to read Types of Groups
to understand how a group's type affects the content visibility, participation, and
invitation permissions for group members.
As a group administrator, you can delete or resend invitations while managing group
membership. This can be handy if you've got a lot of outstanding unanswered
invitations. Go to your group's main page, then click the gear icon > Members. On the Manage group members page, click the Open
Invitations link and select the names of people whose invitations
you want to delete or resend. Use the drop-down menu above the list to select the
action you want to take.
